Facing the disruption caused by the Covid epidemic, in 2020 the Foundation adopted a One Health Visionin line with the “wider” or “planetary” concept of ONE HEALTH, concentrating more and more its activities on the connections between:
- Health (with specific attention to infectious diseases),
considering them as interdependent areas where it’s necessary to act in a synergistic way to fight poverty.
Under this perspective, the “One Health/Planetary Health” approach with a new, holistic attention to the management of the planet’s natural resources, becomes an instrument to safeguard global health with greater potential than a monodisciplinary approach.
With this vision, we fully endorse and share the Pledge for Planetary Health published on The Lancet. https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)32039 0/fulltext?dgcid=raven_jbs_etoc_email
